Sunday Afternoon Thoughts . . .

. . . AWESOME tournament again yesterday for Delaney's team. We came in second place, to probably the best 10-under travel team in Alabama. Lost just 4-2; Delaney had a great clutch hit to drive in one of the points. Our team scored 46 points in our five games, giving up only 5. A picture or two will come tomorrow!

. . . I love softball! I hate the travel involved and the little sleep I'm getting! Didn't get in until after 1 am. this morning. Thanking God I didn't run off the road, since I was half-asleep for the drive home!

. . . WONDERFUL church service this morning. (First off, just glad we made it there! Delaney had to acolyte this morning and after a very late night, I was just thrilled that we actually made it to church with our hair brushed and that our clothes weren't on backwards!) A few favorite quotes from the sermon--which was about the story of the Prodigal Son-- include: "A disatisfied heart never leads to a satisfied life" and "There is a place called 'Home' in every one of us and only one thing can fill it. Not marriage, or children, or work, or golf, or sports, or anything. Just God."

. . . Watching some basketball. Florida is behind right now (I know Phats is way excited right now!) and I don't have a good bracket showing so far. LOL

. . . I wish I could take naps in the middle of the day, but they make me sick. Right now a nap would be really great .... and maybe a shot of caffeine!

Yay!!! I'm first! Sounds like you had a great weekend-- 2nd place is AWESOME! Glad that the tournaments went well. I can only imagine how tired everyone was, and how happy you were that everyone made it to church today. (I didn't :0(

We went hiking yesterday, and after sliding down part of a mountain on my butt, I'm so sore that I can barely walk without help. I'll survive! :0)

Anyway, glad to hear things have been going good for ya'll! *hugs*

The excitement only lasted so long!! We played them well and made them earn it at least. 1 thing is clear, after this game I don't like Florida. I can't stand Noah, and actually was rooting for one of our players to slam the ball in his face HAHA how bad is that?! His constant clapping after every foul was getting on my last nerve. My pick to win it all is still alive as well, UNC. Cringe hate picking them, but thought htey were playing the best.

Congrats to the softball team!! WOHOOO!! Did you guys jump on the hotel beds? Guess it was my turn to write a novel.

Congrats on the good run again this weekend. Sounds like you've got quite a ball player there.

And I'm loving the NCAA tournament this year. I watched it almost all day yesterday. Lots of close games!

Congrats on another great tournament! This brings back memories of when I was a girl and my dad played softball on a base team; I used to so enjoy those times of watching the games!

My hubby's bracket is totally blown!

So glad that you had such a great weekend! Mine was good too, although it decided to get all cold on us again and it was miserable. I'm ready for some warm weather!
Love the quotes from church. And I'm still enoying the tournament too.
